Mika,

Do you make and sell this piece? I have a set of complete channels but I hate to cut them for just this section. Seems like a waste to me but I will if necessary.

Mika that just happens to be the side I need at the moment. If you would pm me a price if you don't mind. I need the quarter panel piece for that side also so I will probably get them at the same time.

Thanks
